Access to Kortext books have been well received by students. Ishita Karamchandani said: “It's been helpful for us since we do not have to worry about the limited number of copies getting taken away by the students from the library. This is helped us overcome the fear of missing out on the essential topics, especially during this pandemic. It indeed is very convenient for us to access it online from anywhere at any point in time.”
